The photo was taken in Coburg at the time after Bee returned from the trip to Egypt. Ena and Princess Henry of battenberg also went along.

A dealer was selling Ena's photo albums of that trip once and the descriptions sounded great. Unfortunately, I don't have $25,000.  :P Still, would've killed to see the pictures--Ena, Baby Bee, Leo Battenberg (in love with Bee), Beatrice, etc....in casual settings rather than posed photos.

I bought some items in the past but a lot of stuff is way overpriced--postcards that go on ebay $25-75 going for minimum $250 and up to several hundreds of dollars. If I ever win the lottery though I'm going after that album.  ;)

Indeed ! Yes. A lot of good stuff though. I just bought things vital to my next book...Others I try to avoid the temptation.  ::)

which dealer?

Sometimes, postcards are soooooo overpriced on Ebay.  I just won a lovely card of Victoria Schaumburg-Lippe (Prussia) - looking rather pretty.    Paid 19 Euros for it/

Yes indeed ! I got my best stuff during my trips to Europe.  ;) but harder and harder to find good stuff on the cheapside.

Just got the new issue of Royalty Digest (Ted Rosvall's). Inside there is a insightful article by John Wimbles on the subject of Ducky's divorce from Ernie. Quite nicely written. Didn't know that Ducky was chums with her cousin Marie Louise (married to Aribet of Anhalt). Interesting how the cousins fates were similar...in a way.  ::)
